Infocare offer a variety of optional extra modules to clients for specific requirements. Currently the additional options available are:
Barcode Scanning of Child Attendance
The barcode scanning module allows users to scan child arrival and departure times, and then validate and upload the scanned data into the Infocare system. The barcode capture program runs independently of the Infocare system which allows users to access this facility on computers other than those that host the Infocare software. For further details and pricing information on the barcode option, please contact our support desk.
Info-Txt Integrated Text Messaging
When you need to get in contact with parents or teachers urgently, sending mass text messages from mobile phones is not a great idea. With the help of our Info-Txt service, you can now send text messages directly from Infocare on a large scale and in a convenient manner. With Info-Txt you have the power to send text messages from any computer to unlimited numbers of parents or teachers, within a short-period of time, in the most cost-effective way. Faster than email and less disturbing and cheaper than phone calls, Info-txt is the right choice for your business communication. To get Info-Txt enabled for your centre, or to find out more information about this module, click Info-Txt or contact our support desk.
As an extension to the notes facility, we provide an optional facility to allow parents to log in and view their child’s learning stories, centre newsletters, a statement of their account etc. This facility provides parents with an excellent method of sharing in their child’s learning experience. To find out more please visit our dedicated Parent Portal page, or contact our support desk.
Additional options within Parent Portal are:

Real estate agents don’t know what makes a site suitable for childcare or which areas have high demand for new centres. Planners aren’t sure what other consultants should be engaged and the Council Officers are worried about what the neighbours might say.
Establish remove all the complexities and get childcare centre developments off to the best possible start.
